Hi all,

 

Newbie here from the UK with a love of Bolens tube frames. Seems like I have brought a bit of a dog of a G14 with a Tecumseh HH140. During recommissioning it has all forward gears in high and low range but no reverse. Input shaft into box turning well but from the parts diagrams and the workshop manual I can't seem to see what might have happened before I tear it down to find out. Has anyone come across this before and is it a common issue?

 

I just need to get it all functioning before another full tear down to restore to its former gloryover winter aqs I'd like a bit of fun running around the fields here.

 

Hope someone can help.

 

Rgds

Welcome to the Forum!

Sounds like you may have a stripped gear!

 

Only way to find out is open the top cover and look inside.

Yes, one would think this, but oil whilst low on volume, was clean. You'd expect some sort of metal in it. I have a removeable plate on the bottom if the transaxle so will remove tomorrow and have a looksee. If it was stripped I'd expect trouble with first as well which I have no problems with. Are the gear teeth known to be weak?

The bottom plate isn't going to show you anything......

Your shifter forks may be out of place, but i would suspect something is stripped in the transmission.

 

These transmissions were built tough and to last forever, but negligence of the owners to Keep the axle end play adjusted and shifting on the fly lead to alot of gear problems.

Well managed to pull the transmission this PM and sure enough as the Doctor predicted the following gears are stripped.

No 40 (1716477) Gear and Shaft
No 61 (1713412) Gear 28T
No 30 (1713409) Gear 38T (though not too bad)

All the others seem useable and not exhibiting too much wear.

Can anyone help with obtaining these and shipping to the UK or would I be better off looking to have them repaired?

Will post a pic as soon as I can get one.

Thanks as ever for your help.
